ALIMS FATWA SET TO ALIENATE YOUNG MUSLIMS FROM THEIR VALUE SYSTEMS

The fatwa by  influential Moulana Yunus Patel published on popular  CII radio website and strongly defended by the station from one of the most senior and influential Alims in KZN and in South Africa “that professional sport is Haraam” will not only be a blow to  sport professionals  like Hashim Amla, the country’s star cricketer but to hundreds of thousands of young people in South Africa and millions throughout the world. The silence of most other Ulema and commentators is even more devastating.
